The Mora family at the amazing W hotel!

The Mora’s came for their summertime vacation to Punta de Mita, and I was so excited to be able to capture their family at the new W hotel! The hotel’s look is very Huichol inspired, so it is super colorful and there were some awesome spots to take photos with this fun family. They were the perfect group for my first shoot at this new hotel 🙂

 

Alissa & Ryan’s vibrant Mexican wedding

Alissa and Ryan and their whole gang celebrated their wedding in style overlooking Sayulita at the beautiful Don Pedro’s Palapa . Coordinated by the always awesome Sea of Dreams, the day came together perfectly. The bride’s dress was gorgeous, the groom’s suit was an amazing blue, and the big bridal party was so much fun to shoot! We got some great photos capturing the beautiful colors and textures that make Sayulita so magical, before heading up to the ceremony. In front of their closest friends and family Ryan & Alissa said their vows, and then partied hard into the night!

Congrats Alissa & Ryan!!!

Norma & Levi party Mariachi style!!

Norma and Levi came from California with their closest friends and family to celebrate their intimate and colorful wedding on the beach in Sayulita. All their guests looked amazing wearing bright colors and the Mariachi band that played during the wedding was such a special treat! Courtney from Sunset Soiree planned a beautiful day, with the ceremony having toes in the sand in front of the awesome beach club Frente Al Punto. Flowers by Flor Mimo brightened up the day, and the party was rocking at Mar Restaurant on the beach.

Emilia is 6 months!

My favorite thing is when I get to shoot my family and friends. I first met Roberta the first day I opened my studio in Sayulita, since she worked in the shop right next door to me! She is now one of my closest friends and I love getting to photograph her and her family 🙂 I have done her pregnancy photos, newborn, and now the 6 month photo session. Now her little girl will be in front of my lens forever!

Love you guys (…even you Stephane)

Villa Amor wedding fills Mallory & Martino with love!

Mallory & Martino decided to host a Villa Amor wedding in Sayulita, Mexico to celebrate with their friends and family with a festive destination wedding, after their earlier intimate wedding  ceremony at San Francisco’s City Hall.

The wedding was planned by the always awesome team of Sayulita Weddings by Karen Ruezga .

The day started with the girls getting beautified by Rebecca from Bliss Salon. I then met up with the boys who looked very cool in their tropical printed shirts.

The ceremony was on the patio of the Grand Villa overlooking the whole town of Sayulita and the ocean, and it was amazing! The flowers and decor at the reception were bright and vibrant and the bride and groom got the party started right by bringing in a couple salsa dancers to give so lessons on how to dance all night long!

It was an amazing day and night, and we even continued the fun with a trash the dress session a couple days later where we roamed around town capturing the all the colors and textures that make Sayulita and Villa Amor so magical.

Congratulations Mallory & Martino!!

Cancun Trash the dress shoot!

The area around Cancun Mexico is known for its beautiful cenotes, which are beautiful cave  like fresh water pools. So what better spot to do an awesome trash the dress shoot! Abby & Jeff were super brave and we got some amazing shots with them fully immersed in the very cold water! LOL
